Third-seeded UCLA races past Cincinnati

(TSX / STATS) -- SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- If this is indeed the road to the Final Four for UCLA, the Bruins will look back on their Sunday game as the one they had to win before they could challenge college basketball's bluebloods for the national championship.

The lights were brighter and the stakes were higher, but freshman point guard Lonzo Ball was as stoic and sensational as ever, leading UCLA to a 79-67 victory over Cincinnati in a South Regional game Sunday night at the Golden 1 Center.

Ball posted 18 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the third-seeded Bruins, who advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third time in four years. The sixth-seeded Bearcats led at halftime, but Ball orchestrated the offense beautifully as the Bruins took control in the second period.
